Design and implementation of stakeholder-driven initiatives that contribute to the goal of a sustainable world with net zero greenhouse gas emissions.


Climate and development priorities are closely interlinked
Climate change and sustainable development are closely interlinked.

Climate change and sustainable development are closely interlinked. Many countries are therefore developing strategies to integrate climate objectives into their national development goals. We support the development of national or sector specific low-emission economic growth strategies and the implementation of their building blocks such as Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs). This includes the analysis of mitigation options and their associated climate and development benefits, the conceptualisation of policy measures and programmes and the development of associated institutional structures and capacities for their implementation.We support stakeholder-driven initiatives and collaborate closely with local experts to make best use of local, national and international knowledge and expertise in the area of climate change and sustainable development. In addition to national work experience, NewClimate experts have supported climate initiatives around the world, including in Argentina, Chile, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ethiopia, Georgia, India Lebanon, Malawi, Maldives, Mexico, Mongolia, Morocco, Peru, Philippines, Samoa, South Africa, Tanzania, Tunisia, Uganda and Vietnam.

CDI Improving Co-benefits and ‘Triple Win’ Impacts from Climate Action: The Role of Guidance Tools Apr 2014 - Naess, L.O., Hagemann, M., Harvey, B., Urban, F., Hendel-Blackford, S. and Höhne, N.
This CDI Practice Paper addresses the role of tools in supporting interventions to achieve the ‘triple wins’ of adaptation, mitigation and development. Over recent years there has been a proliferation of guidance tools to support adaptation or mitigation, increasingly in a development context, but little work on the role tools play in helping to bridge the gap between these three areas in practice.
